Look at what I just got and an explanation as to my whereabouts

After fighting with Clayton for over a month about which vacuum to buy to replace our old one, I finally bought the one that I wanted-a Dyson DC17 Animal. In fact this one cost alot more than the one that I was originally wanting but I ended up getting a steal of a deal on it. I had a coupon code through Linens N Things that gave me 20% off my entire purchase and I didn't pay for shipping either. It made this better model only $40 more than the pink one I was looking at (normally it would be $150 difference). I couldn't resist. I used it last night and I am amazed at how much crud it got out of my carpet. It is almost embarassing! I gotta say that I love this thing. It is so pretty. The top of the canister is a dark and shiny purple and the rest of it is titanium. Who would have thought that they would ever make pretty vacuums? Because of the great coupon code, I went ahead and got the new Dyson Root 6 DC16 Handheld Vacuum also. This little doo-dad looks like the perfect device to clean up the occasional spill of cereal from our kitchen floor. Unfortunately, the store was out of these when I went to pick it up but they are shipping me one out today and I didn't have to pay extra for that. Yay!

Where have I been?
I know I have been bad about updating lately but I have been sick as a dog. I have been diagnosed with sinusitis, bronchitis and pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel. Fun stuff I tell ya. :P

Sorry for the delay in posting these

Belly pic taken at 32 1/2 weeks (11/10/07)-See my belly button sticking out?! I have never had that before. Oh well, at least I don't have any stretch marks. ;)

32 1/2 weeks preggo

Can you believe how big I am? I am really beginning to wonder just how big this little guy is going to be. I have pics of me 2 days before giving birth to Emerson and I was about the same size that I am now. Eeek! Also, I have never had my belly button pop out before so you know that this little guys is sure packing on some weight.

I have a couple of pics below from E's 3rd birthday party from last weekend. He had a blast and I am so glad that he enjoyed himself. Hayden was jealous and is now asking all the time when his special day is going to get here, lol.

Happy birthday to my sweet baby boy!

Emerson trying to hold up 3 fingers, lol
I can't believe that my baby is now a 3 year old. Wow, time sure does fly. Now that we are done with bottles, pacifiers, diapers, bibs and onesies, I just don't know how to feel. I love the freedom of having older children but I sure do miss having a sleeping baby to hold and snuggle. The only thing that deters me from considering a third child (other than Clayton, lol) is the loss of freedom that new mothers have to deal with. That and the fact that I don't ever want to go through diapers again. :P

Tonight we went to Chuck E. Cheese's to support a school fundraiser for Hayden's pre-k. Both kids had a great time but Clayton and I were not impressed. That place is always good for catching some kind of virus. You better believe that I had a bottle of hand sanitizer that we used frequently, lol. After I decided to blow that taco stand (so to speak), we headed to the grocery store to pick up the food items needed for Emerson's party on Saturday. I plan to make homemade barbecue like we have back in NC, some fatty mashed potatoes and chocolate cupcakes. Clayton's Dad and Wife will be coming as are his Grandmother and Sister. I will be sure to post some pics.

BTW, we didn't let E open his gifts today. He will be getting them all at his party. He didn't really seem to mind though since his Daddy gave him a Shredder figure from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He was preoccupied with him for the evening. If he only knew the goodies that were awaiting him! ;)

My Big Boy (Pre-K 4's Class)

I just got Hayden's school pics back and I must admit that I am a bit shocked. He looks so much older all of a sudden! It is crazy. Also, I have no idea how he got such dark features. Yea, brown hair is dominant in my family (Clayton's family seems to be more blondish) but his eyes are so dark that they are almost black. Most of the people in my family are light eyed and so are Clayton's relatives. His skin is even darker toned than ours. Dontcha just love that cute dimple? I think that it is adorable but dimples don't run in either one of our families. If Mission Memorial hadn't of made us keep him in the room with us after he was born, I would swear that he had been switched, lol. He is a fairly handsome little guy and though he may not look like us, we'll still keep him. :P

October Layouts for 3 Scrappy Boys

I had a blast using the October kit from 3 Scrappy Boys. My Mind's Eye makes some of my favorite lines so I was thrilled when I found out that Cindy would be using them in a kit. This is the boyish kit. There is a girly kit available also. :)
